Emercinda
Emercinda is 46 years old. She is a hard-working woman who cares for her two children, Ronal and Franklin, on her own. She lives in her own home which is located in the village of Casacoto.

Emercinda's children are the reason for all her hard work. They are studying at university in the country's capital city and she has to send them a monthly allowance to cover their expenses. This motivates her to continue with her daily work farming. Emercinda has been growing potatoes, peas and corn for 20 years. She starts caring for her crops from the first hours of the day. She sells her harvests at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma where they pay her a good price.

Alongside her daily business farming, Emercinda also raises animals such as pigs, rams and guinea pigs which she feeds up and then sells to butchers who visit her home. This makes her better profits. In the future, she would like to continue growing crops but she would like to grow them in larger quantities and would like them to be better quality.

Emercinda is a member of the "Sembradoras de Casacoto" (Casacoto Growers) community bank and this is her third loan from MFP. Through her community bank, she learns every day to get ahead for the benefit of her family. Emercinda has sown oats on her land and she will use the loan she has requested to buy 5 medium-sized bulls to grow and fatten with oats, and then sell at a higher price.

Emercinda, de 46 años, es una mujer luchadora; pues cuidó sola de sus 2 hijos: Ronal y Franklin con los que vive en su casa propia, ubicada en el caserío de Casacoto. La razón del trabajo arduo que realiza, son sus hijos. Pues ellos efectúan estudios universitarios en la capital del país, donde tiene que mandar una pensión mensual para sus gastos. Todo esto la motiva para continuar su labor diaria en la agricultura, donde siembra desde hace 20 años papa, arveja y maíz, los cuales desde las primera horas del día comienza a cuidar con mucho esmero, vendiendo sus cosechas integras al mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Tarma, donde le pagan un buen precio. Paralelo a su actividad diaria, cuida de animales menores como: cerdos, carneros y cuyes, los cuales después de ensebarlos los comercializa a los carniceros que llegan a su casa, obteniendo así mejores ganancias. Para el futuro desea continuar con la siembra, pero en mayores cantidades y de buena calidad. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Sembradoras de Casacoto”, y este es el tercer préstamo que tiene con MFP, donde aprende cada día a salir adelante para el bienestar de los suyos. Emercinda, tiene sembrado avena en sus terrenos agrícolas, por ello con el dinero que solicita comprará 5 toros medianos, para hacerlos crecer, engordarlos con avena y después venderlos a un mayor precio.
